Leadership metro Richmond

Celebrating 35 Years of
Transforming Community Leaders

Leadership Metro Richmond connects diverse leaders to one another and to community engagement opportunities. We increase leaders' knowledge and perspectives on key regional issues, provide an environment for high-performing conversations, and inspire collaboration, inclusion and unselfish service to our region.


As we celebrate our 35th anniversary, LMR is proud to honor two extraordinary members with our most prestigious awards -- the Ukrop Community Vision Award and the Servant Leader Award. We congratulate Tanya Gonzalez and Tom Anderson for their steadfast commitment to serve our region.
